This extremely browsable book details the dietary and lifestyle habits of eighty people from all over the world. Large color photos show individuals in their homes alongside a typical day's worth of food for them. The particulars of how much a person weighs, their height and age are enriched by an explanation of a typical day's work and how they acquire their meals. A teenage refugee from Chad, a Spanish bullfighter, a Japanese sumo wrestler, and a lifeguard from Australia are all profiled. The book is equal parts sociology and gastronomy. Fans of Studs Terkel will enjoy this slice of life.
